Photographer's Note

The "owner" of the first Temple (6th c. BCE) was not Athena but Aphaea, as was of all the small Temples that had formerly been built in that very place, which Temples were something like country chapels. Many centuries before, since the founding of the holy site, it was Aphaea who was worshipped in Aegina. Athena was added just to the second (and last) Temple in 500 BCE as a "splendid housemate".
